Who we are...

Connecting people in a more meaningful way is not just what BombBomb’s software delivers - it’s what drives our teams every day. Through simple, personal video, we aim to Rehumanize communication. Our team is resourceful and intelligent. Competitive and collaborative. Fun-loving and tenacious. We’re close-knit and love adding new talent to the mix. If you are seeking a dynamic workplace and new challenges, we want to hear from you!

Who we're looking for...

We are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join our small but mighty CORE Team. The CORE Team works behind the scenes to ensure our Product Development Teams are successful and our Software Engineers are happy and productive. We are stewards of our infrastructure, tools, and processes. We partner with the Product Teams by bringing our experience and skill to help everyone succeed both in the short and long term.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Embodies BombBomb’s core values: Relationships, Fun, Humility, Flexibility and Service.
  • Believes that relationships underpin everything we do. You proactively build relationships and trust, knowing that influence, growth, and success flow from that foundation.
  • Exercises excellent judgement. You proactively balance short term needs and long term success. You are self-aware in evaluating if what you're making is good, and when to ask for help.
  • Cultivates deep understanding, both in our technologies and systems, as well as industry trends and best practices. You know that there is always more to learn and another perspective to consider. You approach your work and colleagues with curiosity and empathy. Part of learning is being able to reflect, admit when you're wrong, repair and try again.
  • Takes pride and ownership in their work. You proactively find ways to improve our systems and serve our teams. You are tenacious and willing to go the distance to get something done. You care about and can manage the important details.

What you will do...

  • Build relationships with the members of the product development teams. That’s the foundation from which you’ll lead, influence and have impact.
  • Balance supporting the short term needs of the product development teams (access, blockers, troubleshooting, infrastructure, consultation) with the long term initiatives of the core team. Sometimes that means saying no. Sometimes that means choosing an option that incurs technical debt to remain focused on higher priority efforts. Sometimes that means taking time to wrestle with the right way to go.
  • Become an expert on our platform and tools, bringing your ideas and effort to help us minimize toil and help our Product Development Teams be successful over the long term. This will take some time.
  • Take projects from inception to completion managing all the nitty gritty details. You'll break down your work into the next right steps that you’ll continuously validate, learn from, adjust and ship. The goal is to minimize risk while maximizing learning and impact.
  • Troubleshoot complex systems, following leads between servers, networks, services, and application code.

Abby

Customer Success Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

The projects that excite me most are ones that involve creative problem solving and collaboration with other people. I work with a ton of talented people and they are always willing to help me out and answer my questions, if I am improving, the team is improving. I’m constantly learning new skills because of the people around me.

Mattea

Marketing Scrum Master

What makes someone successful on your team?

A good sense of humor! Helping clients all day is one of the best parts of my job, but sometimes we need to let off some steam. You can always tell you're walking by Customer Success by the laughter and camaraderie.

Relationships and fun are two of the core values of BombBomb, and my team is a shining example of both.

Erin

Customer Marketing Manager

What is your vision for the company?

We’re on a mission to rehumanize how you communicate. Most business communication is done through outdated, plain-text email. BombBomb changes that by making it easy to record, send, and track videos with the tools you use every day. If you want to help us and our customers rehumanize the planet, BombBomb would love to have you.

Rebecca

VP, Partnerships

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work-life balance is something that is taken very seriously among my team here at BombBomb. I am encouraged often to not burn myself out and to find my own pace. Leadership is aware of how important mental health is and how it drastically improves happiness in the workplace. At BombBomb, your family always comes first.
